Physiotherapists work with clients and their families using an evidence-based approach. The primary goal of physiotherapy is to assess and help to improve a child’s development of movement and posture. Together with the child and the child’s family or caregivers, and other service providers, the physiotherapist will assess each child in order to determine goals and strategies that address the child’s needs and abilities.
